No, they are not. You must use a logic family such as the 74LV which also provides
for voltage level shifting. Nothing in the 68EZ328 User Manual says anything either
way regarding the voltages on the i/o (and other) pins, as it usually happens,
attaching a voltage higher than that of the the specified supply of A processor,
generally results in damage to the pin through long term use.
I would certainly welcome being wrong on this issue, but as yet, I have read no
definitive documentation that specifically addresses the issue of TTL family
interfacing. Rule of thumb? If they don't spec it, don't believe it!
